Mariners DH Corey Hart left Sunday’s game against the Twins after straining his left hamstring stealing second base in the top of the fourth inning, reports Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune. Hart took himself out of the game without waiting for a trainer, and he was replaced on second base by Stefen Romero. Hart will be reevaluated on Monday.

Hart, who suffered from a strained right forearm during spring training, hasn’t done much at the plate through the first month and a half of the regular season. He entered this afternoon’s game slashing .210/.292/.355 with five home runs and 17 RBI in 154 plate appearances.

    If there is one thing I want from my DH, it’s him stealing bases.

    And if there is a second thing I want from my DH, it’s that batting line.

    And if there’s a third thing, it’s that batting line in the cleanup spot.

      When he stole the base the Twins were in the lead by two. there were runners at the corners with one out. Nolasco was ignoring him and he was able to steal the base without drawing a throw. because at the time the Mariners needed runs and doing so took the double play off the table, stealing the base made sense, even for an injury prone DH.
